Same Old DiGrazia Vineyards – Still a Winner

Looking back to 2009, this is a piece pulled out of the East Coast Wineries archives: 

I cut my teeth on local wineries back when DiGrazia was one of four or five wineries in the whole state back in the early 1980s. When I first went there, it was among a handful of small wineries that opened up my eyes to a whole world of new possibilities. I tried all their wines. And I am still a big fan of Autumn Spice. Still an absolute winner.

untitled2DiGrazia Vineyards was founded in 1978 by Dr. DiGrazia, and is dedicated to producing premium wines of quality and unique variety. Over 15 wines are offered, ranging from dry to sweet, using estate grown grapes, local fruit and honey. He makes crisp, flavorful wines.

Autumn Spice

White grapes are fermented with sugar pumpkin and honey, then lightly spiced with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Aromatic with a hint of sweetness. Awards: 2006 Big E New England Wine Competition – Gold Medal. Absolutely still fantastic around the holidays.

Wind Ridge
This is a semi-dry Seyval Blanc. Light and crisp with a hint of sweetness. Seyval is known for it’s apple-like flavors, and they come across like biting into a green apple. Great any time of year, whether as a cold summer sipper, or an accompaniment to any meal.

Two clean, crisp whites that are great for sipping and surprising your guests with. DiGrazia is still a winner.
